I have always thought that padded bra's were for not well endowed ladies. Being a 40d (well, one side is) I never even considered one. Now with the padding I have got myself quite evened out but for the nipples which really gave the game away (South-East and North_west)..I was very self concious about this and only wore extra large baggy t-shirts. BUT, after a discussion with my boss (and friend) I decided to try a padded bra...Bought one this morning and WOW!..........I can now wear all the skimpy tops I like! I am just so delighted with not looking like a Cyclops anymore! Woohoooooo!!!!

I think I'll go and stand out the front now and flash them at all the lorry-drivers! LOL Hugs Jxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I bought myself 4 new sleeveless skimpy tops in Turquoise! And some earrings to match!

Number One Son has adorned my ankle with a chinese stick on tattoo, which looks very realistic. I don't know, Nearly 50 and wearing Dollar Store stick-ons? Oh well, as president of the daft sod club, I suppose I can get away with it for now.

Also, I appear to have joined another Club. Until yesterday I was unaware that I was a member......The Jeep Club, I was out yesterday and every other 'Bumble type' Jeep driver waved to me, so I waved back...It's hysterical! I LOVE IT!

Claudia, the turquoise tops are Excellent for sunbathing in! LOL

Hugs Jxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

And you made me laugh!! Glad you found a solution. My husband recomended I lean to the left to lower that side & raise the other. That would even me out. I recommended he check out the sale ad in the newspaper for luggage!! He is now considering taking me on vacation (somehow he missed what I meant!). But oh well.....now I'll have something to look forward to in the future! :) Pammy

Tasha, so excited you're bosomly symmetrical now, and well-endowed! Just in time for summer and those skimpy tops. And our Turquoise Girl, as we know, wears turquoise like nobody else can.

Earrings and tattoos as well? You are definitely styling, as Cindy said. You can get away with anything. (remember 50 is the new 40)

Didn't know you're a Jeep driver, but somehow I didn't picture you in a sedan,either. Let us know if you go off-roading with your new club!

Self image DOES mean a lot! I'm so happy that the padded bra worked out so well for you.
That's how I felt when I got my prosthesis. I had a matching pair again!! LOL!!

Hugs!

I feel so much better now I am not lopsided anymore. Maybe I'll even get up the gumption to get rid of the shoulder bag (Which means my right Lack-Of is always covered by my hand)

The Sky's the limit! LOL Hugs Jxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Like you, I had never worn a padded bra in my entire life - although I'm only a 36B. My surgery was lumpectomy, small tumor; yet, enough to make "the girls" quite apparently mismatched - especially when wearing closer fitting knit tops, etc.

Finally decided to try one of those new-fangled padded and "molded cup" bras - BINGO! They do the trick perfectly. (One cup is filled out, the other - BC/right - is a little empty inside; but, no one knows this except me.)

It took me several YEARS to figure this out, J. So, you are much smarter than I. Which is why you are the Esteemed Leader, and I am the lowly Official Secretary.

Am thrilled that you're delighted with your new found solution! :-)

Kind regards, Susan

I have a tattoo on my ankle, got it for my 50th! You might like yours so much you will need a permanent one. It could be a little turqouise guppy! with the name Aortus underneath.

I can't do the padded bra even though I am very lopsided, still a 38D on the left, and maybe a 38b+ on the right, what's the matter? you don't like have one nipple able to look around a corner??? Well congrats on going for the balanced look, me I kinda like looking lopsided, matches my personality. (just a little warped).
sounds like you are having a ball with Jamie.

Great to hear that you are no longer a cyclops and that you get to wear your skimpy tops so the girls can breathe. I love the dollar tattoo, what a great idea wear it with pride.

Hugs,

So glad to hear someone else mention that lopsided "girls" and as Cat put it so well, peeking around the corner... I thought maybe I should have gone to a breast surgeon and that is why it was looking that way!!!! Yea!!! No I don't feel so bad... going out now to check out those padded bra's...Hey Tasha... don't cause any wrecks out there...lol

Hugs,

Lopsided girls with our padded bra
Give the boob the last hurrah
Nipple looking round corners in the raw
Disease handled so well, it leaves others in Awe
Looking so good it should be against the law
Lets all go out and celebrate like it’s Mardi gras

Cat's Toy,

That is fantastic. I was a member of that club before I had my mastectomy. Now, it's just more obvious to the world.

Tasha, I love the new look, girl. It just screams, "Tasha"!!!!!!

Love and hugs,
Donna

Cat - you are a talented poetess! Am so impressed!

For all of posterity, and so it doesn't fade away on the board...

I suggest you post your "our motto" poem on your own "expressions" section. Or, the "blog" section.

Kind regards, Susan

P.S.: As the Official Secretary of both The Daft Sod Club and The Pets of Daft Sods Club - honestly, I can't handle yet another club. Am simply exhausted by my current duties. So, I'm sorry - if you go forward with a new club... Please don't look to me for assistance. J is a hard-driving, whip snapping boss.

I know you told me to post my other poem too, and I did, so I will make this one permanent on my expressions page too.
but, I am very disappointed, I thought you would be the perfect person to gather us all up and keep the minutes of the lopsided boob club.

haha

Really, it's a no-brainer, just a title. I don't even keep track of membership - no counts, no names, nothing. Therefore, no real skills nor strengths needed. I simply bow - and deeply! - to J in order to retain my fancy sounding title, hoping it's impressive to others. Shallow, I know... :-)

So - I encourage you to GO FOR IT!

Kind regards, Susan

P.S. to Patty and Cat: I'll suggest a name, especially as an offshoot - The Daft Boobs Club. This way, all inclusive, no one's left out. Daft Boobs could even apply to those with perfect reconstruction.

It is my honor to nominate Patty, AKA Outdoor Girl, as the Leader, President, and Secretary of the Daft Boobs Club. Thank you, Patty, for your willingness to accept this weighty responsibility.

Let us all pledge our 24-hour support to our selfless sister. May she never be strapped for appreciation.

Humbly yours,

The Moopster

You rose to the top - Esteemed Leader - immediately! I had to crawl up the corporate ladder, starting as lowly Unofficial Secretary and now - after some time and much effort - recently promoted to still lowly Official Secretary. I'm impressed!

So, here's your first assignment - how does one acquire membership?

Kind regards, Susan

This will take some thought. At first the club was for lop-sided boobs,but it doesn't seem right to leave people out(kind of like in the Dr. Seuss book with the people(if you can call them that)that didn't have stars on their bellies,but some got them after going through the machine-what was the name of that book?!
Don't want to be discriminate.
Can I accept someone as my assistant-and who would want to step up to the plate?!!
And do I bow down to Tash too if it's an offshoot of the Daft Sod club?
So it's the Daft Boob club! Let me think ...

Cat nominated you as Esteemed Leader. Not sure where J would fit in, then. Unless she decides to appoint herself Supremely Esteemed Leader, or something like that. (And who amongst us would dare argue with her, ever? Certainly not me!)

I have no authority to speak for J - she speaks for herself, and I must listen.

Kind regards, Susan

P.S.: I have absolutely no idea which Seuss book you're describing...

I hear there is an opening for an assistant int he Daft Boob Club. My boobs are very daft, one is even made out of a sock (soob), and sometimes tissue (a toob?) Am still experimenting with pretty daft materials. Does that qualify me?

Sincerely,

Moopy

p.s. Patty, I'm with Susan: what is that Dr. Seuss book?

Are you up for being my assistant? So be it then!
And anyone who is missing or has ever had to miss part of their breasts because of this awful disease is a member(and 1percen(Mike),and Aortus if he would like-since he is a wonderful caregiver and friend- is an honorary member-so that pretty much makes all of us members!And I think by now Tasha pretty much deems us all Daft Sods,so there you go-we are the Daft Boob Club(or whatever we have decided to call ourselves(Cat)!!
Still unsure what the name of that book is! Can any of you guys help?

Where did you find your wandering boob, by the way?

Thank you, Esteemed and Fearless Leader of the Daft Boob Club. My first act as your assistant is to find the mysterious Dr. Seuss book. It is......The Sneetches!

Allow me also to applaud your declaration of membership. You are a compassionate leader (as well as daft, of course).

I will inform Aortus of his honorary membership. He will recognize the honor it is.

Your humble friend and assistant,

Moopy

Please read the subject, again. Maybe say it out loud. Could be straight out of a Seuss book, yes?

Dearest Moopster - sincere and heartfelt congratulations for your new position as: Assistant, The Daft Boobs Club. If I can be of any help to you, provide any advice, or share knowledge gained from experience (wink, wink) - please, do not hesitate to let me know.

Patty - You could not have possibly chosen better. I commend your wisdom.

I'll end with my own proud proclamation as a member of The Daft Boobs Club. I guess that's it - I'm in!

Kind regards, Susan
